Porch Pillows

I hope everyone is having a great week!  I am sorry this is not a tutorial; however, I do hope it inspires you to pull out that sewing machine and spruce up your porches. Pillows can be one of the easiest and inexpensive ways to add a punch of color to any space. My advice is to shop the remnant bins of left over fabric. You can find great deals there and they will even have outdoor fabrics for a great price.  Once you've got your fabric, I'm sure you can find an old pillow or two at your house you can pull the stuffing out of.  One more tip: try to keep the stuffing together and insert it into your pillow in one large piece; just like you would put an actual pillow in a pillowcase. You would then have three sides sewn and only one left to sew once you've stuffed your pillow.  You can leave a small hole and fill it with smaller pieces, but this is very time consuming and makes your pillow bumpy. I hope to have some more fun projects this week!
